The Beck family takes their seats to watch the show
One of the perks to working at TheBlaze is that everyone does a little bit of everything. I was even told that when I was interviewed for the job, and they weren’t kidding. I produce for Glenn’s TV program but one of my other passions is photography. Events like Man in the Moon give me a chance to utilize both skills to document Glenn, the crew, and the audience.
Ben and Glenn discuss the production
Since this week has started, there has been a constant buzz of excitement and awe of how this has all come together. You can see it in Glenn’s face. Capturing the events of this week makes it clear that Glenn has had this on his mind for a while. This story is one that travels fast but ends openly for you to finish. To bring it to life, Glenn and Ben McPherson, the director of the show, put in an incredible amount of work. Not to mention, of course, all of the crew at ADL.
Glenn talks to the dance group working on the show
Last night we watched the first dress rehearsal, and before it began Glenn and Ben sat on the lawn going over last minute details. Glenn was so excited to get started. And once I got to see the show, I knew why. Everything fell into place and I definitely shed a tear or two. Guys, this show is everything anyone could ever want in a performance, and you leave feeling like you can conquer the world…well maybe after a good night’s sleep first.

Working on the set
It’s amazing to see how this has come full circle since the mentions of Man in the Moon first began. My first day working at TheBlaze was the weekend after Restoring Love, making Man in the Moon my first “Glenn event”. Glenn talks about it with so much fervor that it just rubs off onto other people, in the best possible way. I may not have a good idea of where Glenn and this company have been, but I now know where we are going. And folks, it’s going to get real good.
Glenn tells J.P. what he can expect to see at Man in the Moon
I just got back from watching about 80% of Man in the Moon and all I can say is WOW!
Tonight I saw Walt Disney looking down and smiling, saying, “Creativity and imagination are back”.
Man in the Moon is more than a Glenn Beck Production, it’s bigger than you and me and Glenn. Watching everything come together tonight was one of the most amazing experiences I have ever had in my life.
I was sitting next to Raj Nair(Liberty Tree House) and when it all began both our mouths dropped and we just couldn’t take our eyes off of what was happening. As the show went on we both would just look at each other with awe and just shake our heads out of amazement.
I can say with all honesty that this will change lives, this will change your perspective on this country, this will help America to remember where she came from and remember that we are so much more than just a citizen of some country, we are citizens of the greatest country where dreams truly can come true but only if you’re willing to step-up and stand for what is right, and stand for one another.
The past two nights I’ve been able to see about 50 percent of Man In the Moon.
It really didn’t hit me how big this production really is until last night. Seeing the moon rising above the stage, watching the dancers, listening to the amazing soundtrack and hearing the story, really opened my eyes to the importance of this story being told in this massive production.
It’s amazing how many people are helping to produce this show. The best of the best from around the country and the world right here in Utah all willing to help one man who had a story and an idea. A story that needs to be told to America…To wake America up.
The soundtrack is beyond one of the most amazing things I’ve ever heard. When we were in the studio on Monday night listening to the full soundtrack of the show, everyone realized that something important is happening in Salt Lake City this week. The music is more then just brilliant people who wrote the music, it has so much power and emotion to it. It will be something you have never before heard.
So far this has been an amazing experience, I have never been more proud to work for a man who is not afraid to go above and beyond, to step outside of the box that we Americans have put our creativity and imagination in. I have never been more proud to work for a company who is willing to do what no one else will, tell the truth. Be willing to stand for truth when no one else will stand.
